Grants Manager


Position Summary:

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) is searching for a Grants and Finance Manager to provide professional-level sponsored projects management (the profession of research administration) specifically for post-award functions that include, but may not be limited to budget development, account maintenance and oversight, billing/invoicing, reporting, compliance, and closeout. This position will work independently for one or two departments, beginning with the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences (HESP). This role will be responsible for developing and implementing a post-award management system for monitoring and overseeing the sponsored project portfolios for Faculty, Postdoctoral Fellows and Graduate Students, in accordance with the policies and procedures of the Department, College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, and University.

This position will interact with a diverse group of professionals and research faculty in an evolving professional environment. A major goal of the position is to support faculty in a way that contributes to the growth and accomplishment of departmental research. Currently, the HESP NIH award portfolio includes multiple F awards, a P01, T32, and many R01s. Outside of NIH, HESP receives awards from Foundations, other Universities, the National Science Foundation, and other Federal Sponsors.

The BSOS Dean's Office, where this position is located, is committed to a shared-services model for departments that do not have the portfolio to support specialist positions. So while this position will be doing post-award work for a number of departments in the college, it will report to the Executive Director of Research management in the BSOS Dean's Office.

Minimum Qualifications:

Education: A bachelor’s degree in public health, public administration, social/behavioral sciences, physical sciences, nursing, healthcare, finance, accounting, business administration, business, or a directly related field from an accredited institution.

Experience: Five years of related experience.

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities: Knowledge of research grant preparation and administration is required; including Post-Award for NIH awarded grants and federal audit experience as well as thorough knowledge of the Uniform Guidance.
